Christmas in Alsace with a toddler?

We visited Colmar a few years ago and thought it was lovely and have been wondering about heading that way for a week over Christmas.

We don't have a car so are looking for somewhere easily accessed by public transport.

Don't want to be surrounded by tourists 24/7, and would love to stay in one of the littler towns around Colmar (Kaysersberg, Riquewihr etc), but we will be travelling with our 2 year old....

Will I be able to fulfill my vision of a picture-postcard Christmas with my little one, or will we be rundown by tourists or snow-bound for a week in a place with no open shops/restaurants and no way to get out?!?!?

What does?

All the shops and restaurants will be open in Colmar over that time with the possible exception of Christmas Day itself.
If you opt to stay in one of the surrounding smaller towns or villages do look up the public transport options beforehand. The public transport system in Colnar itself is very good but I'm not sure about the surrounding area.

The chances of being snowed in in that area are very slim unless we happen to have some exceptionally bad weather and there are loads of things to do with children even in winter.
